“It played like a big tentpole in Italy, suggesting there won’t be much push back overseas,” Moore said.

We get proactive and preemptive and that's suddenly wrong also.
Next 2-bit dictator wants to start crap somewhere I say let it be. I'm over trying to please the haters.


As for Captain America I'm glad it did well, not cause America is in the title, cause it was a well crafted movie. If it were a good Alpha Flight movie I'd be there. I just like it when movies I like, and are comic in nature, are embraced by the movie going public.

Well, Iraq was a stupid war, everyone knows that. The US also entered WW2 for selfish reasons, but the Allies wouldn't have cared about motives at the time, they were just happy to have them onside.

On topic, I do think this whole anti-American sentiment is exaggerated as far as Cap's international numbers go. The real issue is whether other countries can be bothered for the 4th superhero film of the summer. Reviews have been ok, but nothing to suggest it's a must-see, so the figures will be interesting.

Here's another thing people forget about. Your whole country doesn't have to go see it for it to be a hit; Brazil has a population of about 200 Million people, and Thor did $17 M there; I don't know how much ticket prices are in Brazil relative to the USD, but I think it's safe to say that no more than 2% of Brazil's population saw Thor.

So Cap doesn't need to win over everyone...he just needs to win over 1-3 in 100 people to be a success. When you look at it that way, Cap hitting a high WW total isn't impossible, given this is a character that has sold comic books in several countries.

So 98% of people can still have their "**** america" reaction, and this film can still be a success.

I don't understand the whole anti-American thing, especially from people in the UK and such. Was there a single American represented in Harry Potter? Yet that did gangbuster business here. And how many Americans love James Bond?

I don't think it's really an issue of anti-american sentiment, but possibly just a relative lack of interest in a patriotic american hero that is not especially well-known. It's not as if everybody's default position is to pay money to see the movie. The audience has to feel motivated, so Captain America might just not have the draw elsewhere that he potentially has in the States. That said, I think the movie will do just fine overseas, perhaps not spectacularly well, but it should do ok.

Despite popular American belief, the rest of the world doesn't love it.
It's one of the downfalls of being the arrogant dominant world power, so any movie that might come off as being overly patriotic might irk some foreign viewers. But this isn't nearly as bad as the handful of movies where Americans took foreign war victories and made them their own.

Back to box office talk, I'm a bit worried. The movie opened up decently, but this weekend it'll have Cowboys and Aliens and the Smurfs to contend with. I'm starting to think this movie might not make more than 200 million if it is lucky.

I dunno about the anti-American sentiment hurting CA. If there was a movie called Captain China, I'd watch it if it had cool kung fu.

C&A won't be that high a grosser. It will make 40 mil tops. Also, Smurfs has a different demographic.

I refuse to judge B.O. predictions because something tells me C&A will do better than expected if the overall consensus critically is good.

And Smurfs is a kid's comedy...it will do numbers the first weekend. These type of films always do.

Yogi Bear didn't get Chipmunk money. I don't think Smurfs will either.

Smurfs is for little kids. It can make money and not effect Cap. Different age group. As for C&A...it looks like it will get a mixed reception. I don't see it doing that well.

I just thought some people who might of considered taking their kids to cap, god hate them, will instead decide to bring them to the smurfs.

C&A is going be a bigger hurdle to overcome than Smurfs I would think.

Cap made $65.1 not $65.8. So it didn't beat Thor in the opening day box office showdown. lol I'm sure that will start some unnecessary debate.

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/ente...rica-thor.html


Still, I think that's solid. If Cap can mirror Thor's box office trajectory, fine by me. It doesn't need the biggest box office it needs to make enough for a sequel imo. That's all I really care about.

3D Ticket sales could be a good indicator why it didn't bring in more $$$.

Read somewhere that Cap only had 30% of it's shares in 3D, while Thor was something around 40%...

But at the same time, it somewhat could indicate that a lot more people actually saw Cap since it still brought in $65.1M despite a lower 3D count with the 2D making most of the revenue.

Cap had 40% roughly in 3D ticket sales...Thor had 60% in 3D. Thor also had IMAX, which Cap does not.

Wow, even bigger discrepancy than I thought! That actually shows that more people might have indeed seen Cap, just that they didn't pay the premium for 3D nor IMAX.

I was surprised why Cap didn't get the IMAX treatment... my 2 theaters had Harry Potter playing in both IMAX screens.

I'm still glad all those "Biggest Superhero of the Summer" articles were written yesterday. lol even if it's not true (or possibly, not true YET) that's good press.

I was surpised too, but Potter's IMAX push was def more warranted than Cap's. But, the article I read yesterday said at the 65.8 prediction, Cap's ticket sales were up 9% from Thor's, so Cap even with the 65.1 actual would have sold more tickets.

Ditto. It seems like win/win for both, too, because as Box Office Mojo noted, Cap had higher attendance than Thor. So Thor can claim the opening weekend box office crown, and Cap can claim the opening weekend attendance crown - either way, Marvel Studios wins this superhero summer.

I hope Cap does well overseas. I really want my Cap sequel sooner rather than later.
